HR and Employment Law Resources for Louisiana

Louisiana state image

Louisiana is about middle of the road when it comes to being either employer- or employee-friendly. This divide can be seen by looking at the following laws: an employer in this state may not consider criminal history of an applicant or employee unless it is job specific; however, the state antidiscrimination law applies to employers with 20 or more employees – whereas the federal law applies to employers with 15 or more employees.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in Louisiana.
